yes without you wont hardware acceleration in fcpx or safari for example while watching youtube videos. you can confirm it working by VDADecoderCheckerSierra. Why do you need to have this acceleration? it will help the cpu itself to outsource some pf the decodings to igpu.without igpu fake id no hardware acceleration (in FCPX or...)?
Some combination of flags in AMD7000Controller.kext may have fixed my video playback glitching issues.I'm encountering some weird glitching that happens during video playback ... relatively repeatable on certain youtube videos and causes horizontal lines to glitch across parts of the screen. Stops immediately if I stop video playback. Oddly I never encountered this prior to the WhateverGreen fix so I suspect it is related. If I enable h264 acceleration via intel video, the problem almost goes away entirely, but then final cut starts crashing again. Luckily Skylake processor alone is capable of playing back nearly any video without acceleration, so I guess I won't worry about it too much right now.
For HS try Framebuffer Orinoco? Mork mentioned it earlier and I've used it to get full audio in High Sierra, the multiple screen issue may be HS related. I heard it worked in HS pb2 but not in pb3.I'm having quite the interesting issue on HS 10.13 PB3 - Fresh install in APFS with identical setup and minor changes to config.plist in different version of Clover (4128 on HS vs. 4035 on Sierra) will only boot with RX 480 to one screen. My completely working installation on 10.12.6 loads both screens no problem. IORegistryExplorer shows both connections in Sierra and only one in High Sierra using the same framebuffer (Dayman, the default I guess) but on different connectors. I'm using skylake with iMac17,1 SMBIOS with Lilu, WhateverGreen, and IntelGraphicsFixup for video output. Has anyone else run into this issue or would know how to troubleshoot it?
Yes. You'll see "Radeon Pro 460" or "Radeon Pro 460/560" under "About This Mac" after install WhateverGreen and Lilu kexts.Does this new patch with WhateverGreen, support RX 460 - on an XFX 4 GB board?
I know the RX 460 works, but not sure if it works on the XFX models (due to different vbios)?
This may be a dumb question, but how are you selecting the framebuffer? WhateverGreen's FAQ says not to use the Clover framebuffer selector, but I don't know how to choose one otherwise. And reading back further I just saw the same thing - lack of multimonitor support in PB3 while it was present in PB2. Apparently external monitors are bugged in iMacs on HS Betas.For HS try Framebuffer Orinoco?
